    A true miracle worker. Love that it helps with breakouts, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and so much more. Absolute love this when travelling and I can’t pack all my skincare as this covers just about everything I need.

    If you have oily, acne proned skin this will be the God sent product for you. It works miracles, soothes and changes the texture of your skin. I have been using this for over 6 months and my skin has never looked so good. I still have a long way to go in terms of my acne scars and uneven skin tone, however all good things takes time.

    This product help with my maskne and especially my congestion. Its one of those that you need in your cabinet for any sort of flaring or irritated skin concerns!! No scent and light weight

    Absolutely love this product! I am use to using 15% azelaic acid and this is just the perfect product when I want all the benefits but none of the irritation. It helped with reducing congestion and hyperpigmentation. It is not the most glamorous feeling product but it does what its suppose to do. I love that this is Proudly South African as well. Well done Skin Functional !

    This product lasted for quite some time, which is incredible considering that I used it morning and night for several months once my skin had built up tolerance!

    Lovely soothing effects – which is great for my sensitive skin – however, the best part is how it helped with my post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. I had many scars on my face, neck and decolletage following a bout of chickenpox, and this nifty product helped a lot on my way to recovery. Most of the scars in this area are COMPLETELY gone (approximately 3-6 months of consistent use). It should be noted that I used it in conjunction with a Vitamin A derivative to achieve my results.
